Recipe Cook Time

Rice flour parcels stuffed with a coconut and jaggery stuffing. Fried till golden.


To make outer cover:

2 cup rice flour

1 cup water

4 Tbsp ghee

Pinch of Salt

To make stuffing:

2 cup shredded Coconut

2 cup Jaggery

4 Tbsp poppy seeds

Cardamom powder

Roasted cashewnuts and raisins


To make outer cover:

Mix rice flour and salt in a bowl.

Add water and knead well.

At the end add ghee and knead again.

Keep it aside for 15 mins.

To make stuffing:

In a pan, roast the poppy seeds.

Once they are roasted well add the shredded coconut and jaggery. Mix everything well.

Finally add cardamom powder and cashewnuts.

The stuffing is ready.

To make modak:

Take small balls of the dough, roll it into small puris.

To make the modak crispy the puri should be thin.

To make modak of same size cut out the puri with a round shaped cutter.

I have used the cover of a container. Now spread spoonful of stuffing over the puri.

Fold the edges as shown in the picture and gather them in the center. Seal it properly.

Heat oil and deep fry the modaks. The oil should be not too hot as the modak can get burnt and remain uncooked from inside.

Stir them at regular interval to make sure that they are cooked from all sides.

Store them in an air tight container.

Serve them hot.
